Enjoying a drink in the Beer Garden of the Bucks County Playhouse. It was a beautiful afternoon. I had a Maker’s Mark on the rocks, while Justin went with a delightfully refreshing Pineapple Hefeweizen.

Restaurant Review: China Star (Bethlehem, PA)

Bethlehem on a Monday night is sleepy. Bethlehem on a Monday night after 10 PM after a few hours at the casino is dead. We searched online and drove around trying to find something. Anything. When it seemed like our only option was a Perkins, we did one more search and found a nearby Chinese…

A Quick Stop at Gaslight

This is not a review, just a quick piece to say that I have finally been to Gaslight in Atlantic Highlands. They have been around since 2014 and I have worked in town since 2011.

There was a cheesesteak staring at me on the menu with ingredients such as Guinness-soaked onions, hot cherry peppers, and two kinds of cheese that had my mouth-watering.
